Disdain for 'SoWyn' And Some Defense Of Overtown

There was strong disapproval, and even outright disdain, among Curbed commenters yesterday for SoWyn, a name they considered gimmicky, and an affront to the neighborhood's identity as part of present-day Overtown. Others expressed curiosity at where Overtown ends and whatever it is that's east of Overtown begins.
